Oregon Farm Wedding

DIY Weddings

Photos by:

This wedding sent over by Anna Jaye Photography shows how to expertly play with textures and colors to create a fun, relaxed, and memorable wedding day. Kelsey and Greg had a little over a year to plan their ceremony and reception, and the results show in what amounts to a truly romantic affair. With pinwheels, burlap, and lace, there are just enough handcrafted details to go around!

From the bride, Kelsey: When we set out to plan this wedding 15 months ago, I really wanted to create a style that was not only vintage chic, but created a very romantic environment with the colors and fabrics. I loved the mixture of textures, incorporating burlap and lace, because it’s very feminine while rough around the edges at the same time.

Some adjectives to describe the look we were going for are: romantic, vintage, and whimsical. Our colors palette was anything from peach to coral, khaki to the brown of our burlap table runners. We also tried to incorporate gold glitter wherever we could, because I’m a little obsessed with the color peach and gold glitter. Because we had 15 months to plan our wedding, there were many DIY projects involved. Greg created a Greg

We created twine globes that hung above the area in which we were married. We created all of the programs (which were gold glitter fans), the seating assignment cards that hung on the vintage mattress spring, and my mom made half of the centerpieces which were succulents planted and arranged in vintage sewing boxes. My MOST favorite DIY item at the wedding was our cake backdrop which was created by myself and my best friend Alicea. Most everything we did at the wedding was DIY. With the help of Pinterest, Etsy, my best friend Alicea (whose wedding was 3 weeks before mine!), and my very patient now-husband we created the perfect wedding for us!

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Many brides can put together a beautiful ceremony in a short period of time, however, I felt so stress-free and had the luxury of planning every last detail with our wedding 15 months from when we got engaged. We were able to work with every one of our first choice vendors because we booked them so far in advance. We negotiated better contracts because we had more time. We planned every single detail, down to the napkins with 15 months. Don’t rush it – enjoy your engagement, and focus on the details, because that’s what makes it your day and not someone else’s!

When I first started planning, I was a little bit of a control freak, but was able to delegate things to my friends and family little by little as time went on. One thing to remember is: people want to help! Weddings are a labor of love and friends love helping with crafts and planning, all you have to do is ask! I can’t tell you how many craft days we had leading up to the wedding day! I was reminded of how blessed I am by my amazing family and friends!

Fall Wedding Details by Bows ‘n Ties


Photos by:

It’s no surprise that Fall is the sweetheart of weddings. With it comes a cornucopia of colors with an ever changing palette and texture aplenty, making wedding planning a feast with inspiration. Today we are selecting a few of our favorite fall wedding details, color palettes and matching ties from Bows-N-Ties. They currently carry over 4000 neckties, bow ties, and matching pocket squares that are sorted to match over 250 popular bridesmaids dress colors – including J.Crew, Alfred Angelo, Dessy and Davids Bridal bridesmaid dresses. Since we can’t talk about Fall without mentioning its rich hues, we also selected a few color palettes we love for the season:

We love this wedding above from Cameron Ingalls, which pairs the fall details of dried wheat with rich tones of fig and plum bridesmaids dresses and matching ties for the groomsmen.

Fall is also apple season! This means you can incorporate them in several different ways. Starting with apple orchards themselves, one of our favorite spots for an engagement session during this season. We also love incorporating apples in a wedding such as escort cards, having an apple cider bar, or candy apple favors like in this wedding we featured above, shot by Raya Carlisle.

plaid wedding details

Plaid instantly make us feel cozy. The gorgeous bride above shot by Kina Wicks is our inspiration for our next favorite detail. You can simply pick a plaid pattern you like and pull your wedding colors from there. We personally love this plaid tie. If you do choose to outfit your men in fantastic Bows-N-Ties neck ware, then you should certainly enter their Wedding Picture Contest for a chance to win $250! There is a new winner selected every month!

Ultimately Autumn is a season of bold and unabashed color, like we find in this Chicago wedding we featured above from Olivia Leigh Photographie. Breaking away from muted tones we’re used to seeing, our picks for the groomsmen ties are vibrant with a fresh spin on the traditional fall colors.

DIY Moss Table Numbers

DIY Projects

Photos by:

We’re delighted to have our good friend Jenny of Hank and Hunt with us today to share how to make these eye-catching moss-covered table numbers. You could always use the numbers alone on the table, but to kick it up that extra notch we love the idea of placing the numbers under a bell jar as seen here!

diy moss table number

From Jenny: As the temperatures cool, you can still add touches of the season from outdoors into your wedding décor. The easy moss wrapped number resembles a tiny topiary gracing your table and is a perfect addition to a fall wedding.

For this project, you will need:
-large bell jar
-wood numbers (to fit bell jar)
-bamboo skewers
-wood disks
-instant Green Moss sheets
-kitchen scissors

1. Cut skewers to 3” using the inside part of the kitchen scissors. Hot glue to the back of the wood numbers, be sure to adjust for straightness.

2. Moss comes in large rolls with a mesh on the back. Cut a small sheet large enough to overlap around the number. Trim around the edges, leaving enough to wrap.

3. Wrap the edges and secure moss down with hot glue underneath, trimming and pulling as needed. If it starts to move on you on a few of the trickier numbers, feel free to tack down the front of the number with a few dots of hot glue first. For curves and corners, cut the overlap to the edges with slits. Add small pieces or chunks of moss and glue to fill in holes on the back.

4. While holding the number vertical, hot glue the bottom of the skewer to the center of the wood disk to make a stand.

5. Cut a piece of moss to cover the base of the bell jar and trim to fit. Cut a radius slit from the edge to the center to slip in the number stand.

6. Secure the number to the center with hot glue. Add the moss base over it and tack down edges with hot glue. If you plan to reuse the bell jar, it’s okay because the hot glue will come off easily later.

7. Place the top over the jar and repeat with remaining numbers.

The moss wrap technique will work for any base of your choice, think about incorporating into a floral centerpiece or tacking to the top of a interesting collection. Use a variety of objects, like ribbon or fabric, to hide the base of the number. They would be equally gorgeous as initials or a grouping to say hello on the escort table.

All items are digitally printed from a master watercolour or acrylic artwork piece and individually and lovingly painted upon.

I’m a British designer with a degree in textile design, artist and a person with a passion for intricate creativity who’s inspired by all fine things, whether it’s food, interiors or architecture. I’m influenced heavily by my love of travelling, my rich heritage and travelling frequently through the Mediterranean where I have family in Portugal and Paris. I’m exhilarated and humbled by the beauty of this world. Bringing these ideas back to my design studio, each piece is fuelled from the cultures across the world.

I enjoy bringing a fresh decadent approach to wedding invitations, which are a timeless medium. I have always loved weddings and seeing the bride in her white dress has always been a magical moment for me. I feel completely over the moon to be able to create irreplaceable memoirs that the bride can look back on one day with a huge smile.

When I’m not busy in my design studio, I love exploring new parts of Europe, trying to improve my hopelessly basic French and Portuguese skiing, cross stitching, kissing my sons, watching period dramas and painting whilst drinking copious amounts of tea.
